|The Four Seasons - Memphis|
Memphis were formed in 2005 in a place near Hull. This studio based act started work on the debut album 'Photogenic', which blended a mixture of post-rock, ambient, synth, and electronica sounds to create a perfect blend of sound. After a year out, Memphis started work on album number two in 2009. The album proved hard to complete with several recording sessions scrapped. Slowly but surely over the course of early 2010 the album started taking shape...

|Archive II - Electronic - Jack Anderton|
Jack Anderton - Archive II - Electronic charts the progression from freeform Ambient Acoustic music based on open-plan layers of acoustic ambience to filtered synths, keyboard melodies and beats, spanning a 5 year period of music production. Early electronic efforts can be seen with Io from the 2005 album Mushroom Clouds which was a precursor to some of the music that followed, and pieces from the 2006 album Frequency that changed the tone away from guitars and choral vocals to electronic music ...

|The Moment - Jack Anderton|
Expanding on the his earlier ambient, atmospheric electronic music, The Moment starts in a calm unprepossessing manner with 3 ambient tracks before settling into a pattern of lightly toned ambient electronic music with a slightly poppy theme. One element of the album is the extended use of untampered field recordings which complement the ambience greatly. The album does change in tone and genre from beginning to end but is held together via the samples and melodies that lend the record an airy t...

|Random Proportions - Loose Link|
Debut release from Loose Link, a sound collage artist from New Zealand. Random Proportions is a collection of hip-hop breaks, cut'n'paste samples, audio collages and unconnected sounds connected. Instead of pasting together samples and loops into pop songs, a la The Avalanches and RJD2, Loose Link arranges them into thick, layered soundscapes, morphing voices, beats and orchestras into a blanket of comforting chaos which owes as much to ambient as it does hip-hop and breakbeat...

|Terminal Window - Various Artists|
Terminal Window is a music project from FSOLBoard, a community of Future Sound of London fans on the internet. Artists on the board were invited to contribute tracks and collaborations to the album, given nothing but the title Terminal Window. The final record holds together incredibly well as an individual album, merging ambient breaks from the likes of Loose Link and Noisesurfer with more traditional ambience of Off Land and cubus, and more experimental sounds from Herd and Full-Source...

|Electron Mace EP - Loose Link|
Loose Link's second release, the Electron Mace EP charts a gradual move away from his debut album, towards a more fractured sound, with samples, loops and beats fitting together in a less logical, more abstract manner. The first five tracks are all reworkings by Loose Link himself, while the second half of the package finds remixes in various styles, from the Euro-dance leanings of Dinimiciúla Duo, Option Command's more modern computer cool, cubus and Human Robot's ambience, Second Thought's ac...
